Types of Drug Rehabs and Detox Centers
If you or a loved one is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it is important to receive professional help to being the road to recovery. Unfortunately, there is no one type of rehabilitation center for everyone—different styles and methods help different people, and then can only be successful if the person truly wants to help themselves.
In order to best choose why types of programs might work best for you, ask yourself these questions:
- What substance(s) are you addicted to?
- How long have you been addicted?
- What type of budget do you have for various programs?
It is always best, and easiest, to start your recovery with a backbone of friends and family supporting you. Those who have a great support system waiting to help them after treatment are most likely to have successful treatment and stay clean. Someone who has no one to support them is more likely to fall back into their addictions once treatment is completed.
There are many various popular rehab and treatment options.
Here are three of the most popular methods of beating your addictions:
Long-term rehabilitation programs:
Sometimes called inpatient drug rehabs, this program is where the person with an addiction checks in to live in a residence or recovery center, usually starting for 60 days or more. Long term rehab is usually the most comprehensive treatment, as you can fully detox while addressing the medical and mental issues of your addictions and withdrawals. This type of rehab is usually recommended for people who have struggled with addictions for a long time. Maker sure that you have a medical insurance plan that includes rehab.
Outpatient rehabilitation programs:
These are rehab programs where the person with an addiction still lives at home, but actively attends sessions at an outpatient center. This type of rehab is good for people who still need to work or take care of family/children. These programs are usually best for those who have had short-term addictions, and it is easier to relapse as you are free to be out in the world.
Holistic drug rehab programs usually are inpatient programs that use alternative therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, acupressure and more. Whole body wellness and nutrition is the focus, and has been highly effective long term.
Whether you have just recently found yourself with the symptoms of addiction, or you have struggled with your addictions for a long time, there are many different types of programs out there to help in the path to recovery.
